Thanks to the SF Chronicle for letting us know that fixing the tilting Millennium Tower, which has vexed the city and lowered property values of the buildings residents, will cost taxpayers $30 million.

The $30 million share from the taxpayers is just a portion of the overall settlement of $100 million from nine lawsuits to address the issue of the leaning tower.

To fix the 58-story tower, 52 piles need to be drilled 250 feet down into bedrock to shore up the building.
